If your project might involve party walls, or you think your neighbour is carrying out work unlawfully to a dividing wall or structure, our surveyors can help. From simple domestic alterations to multi-million pound retail reconstruction, we have dealt with an extensive range of cases covering most UK building types.

In the second situation, the 2 surveyors will appoint a third surveyor, in case any disputes arise.
Most significant work to a party wall, such as structural alterations, falls under the Act. In addition, the Act applies where a wall nearby a neighbour’s land is affected by excavations, even if the wall does not form a border with the neighbour’s land.
